Details

The Hilkinson Ruper magnifiers are High Power pocket magnifiers and are used for the close inspection of such items as circuit boards, hallmarks, stamps, watermarks and precious stones. Of very compact size, the lenses of these robust magnifiers are protected by revolving into the metal cover. Frequently used by gemonologists, stamp collectors, coin collectors, collectors of antiques bearing hallmarks, geologists and botanists, these magnifiers have a multitude of applications.

Why Ruper? The story goes that when first manufactured for Hilkinson in Japan in the mid-fifties they were to be called Super Magnifiers. An unfortunate typo changed this to Ruper Magnifier. Over 50 years later, the Hilkinson models are still made in the same factory and they are still known as Rupers.
